Ecclesiastes 6:3,4 (KJV)
3 If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.
4 For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.

Lord God, it truly is a miracle that You were born of a virgin. This was a miraculous event indeed. All the angels surely were rejoicing on this great day. Only You could allow this to take place. And to know that You prophesied of it 700 years ago to Ahaz is amazing. Your prophesies are true and they always come to pass, especially this one. Your birth was the most amazing event to take place. Nobody will or ever forget the day that You, my Lord, came into the world. Lives have been and will forever be changed because of it. I am so grateful that You came, dear God. Because of this knowledge, my life is different. There is no more shame but love. You have scattered all the darkness and ushered in Your light. Because You came down and bore our sins on the cross, I have freedom from sin. There is no more chains, for You are my shield. I give You all the glory for what You have done in my life. I am rescued by You, my Messiah and King. You are my Savior and whom I look to in faith. I love You Lord. Amen.

Oh Lord, I am so grateful to study about Your coming to this earth. It is refreshing to know that You were born of a virgin and came to save us all from our sins. You could see that we were all in trouble, therefore, You took upon Yourself the weight of our sins, that we could find freedom. You were born and lived a perfect life. However, evil people despised You, my Lord, and lifted You up on a cross. Though it was necessary for our salvation, it would have been so difficult to see You go through this and die. Surely, You paid the price for all our sins and did it all because of Your love for us all. I will never understand everything You've done for me but always know that Your grace is sufficient for me. I know that Your mercy endures forever and that was shown by the sacrifice You made for us all. I am so grateful for the cross. I am so grateful for Your birth and Your desire to free us from bondage. You are my King and I give You my life and my whole heart. I love You Lord. Amen.
